    $\begingroup$ Is "astronotical" in fact how you intend that to be spelled? $\endgroup$ – xnor Feb 11 '15 at 21:48

The answer is

Oscar

for the following reasons:

astronotical fish -> astronotus ocellatus = oscar fish
an owner of crown jewels -> Oscar of Sweden (King of Sweden and Norway, 1799-1859)
Chelsea -> Oscar dos Santos Emboaba Junior (plays for Chelsea)
an honoured Akira -> Oscar academy award for Akira Kurosawa
a synthesizer -> OSCar synthesizer (by the Oxford Synthesiser Company)

My guess:

Kurosawa / Kurozawa

Reasons:

Akira Kurosawa is apparently a Chelsea fan. Kurozawa is a synthesizer. There is a movie Jellyfish by K. Kurosawa. Akira Kurosawa's Seven samurais is often reffered to as the crown jewel of Japanese film.

Hrm.. tricky...

They are all masters of their domain

Astronotical fish

Master of the stars

Owner of crown jewels

Ruler of a kingdom

Chelsea

Might be subjective, but masters of the pitch?

Honoured Akira

Oragami master

syntheziser

Master of all things musical or sound

    $\begingroup$ Good try, but the solution is easier than that. $\endgroup$ – Enigma Feb 12 '15 at 5:39

Well I doubt it's correct, but here goes:

Dragon

Reasoning:

Astronotical fish

Blank, because I have no idea where you're going with astronotical. Dragons are kinda like huge, flying, fire-spewing fish though.

Owner of crown jewels

Dragons hoard gold and jewels, I guess? There's an obvious link somewhere I feel I forgot.

Chelsea

The thing on the crest (of the football club) has a dragon look going on.

Honoured Akira

Toriyama, creator of Dragon Ball.

synthesizer

Apparently, Synthesizer is a boss in some Dragon Ball game.
